Sports Star Awards
Since 1997, the City of Rockingham Sports Star Awards has marked an annual celebration of outstanding achievements within the Rockingham sporting community. The City takes great pride in recognising and rewarding the achievements of local sporting individuals and teams.
Celebrating its 21st anniversary, the awards have recognised international, national, state, regional and local competition level champions from Rockingham. The value of sport and recreation in the Rockingham community cannot be over emphasised.
The Sports Star Awards continue to grow in capacity as one of the premiere sport awards events on the local calendar. The Sports Star Awards evening was held on Thursday 28 September to announce the winners of each category .
